MUTOH to preview new XpertJet UV LED 64” printer at Drupa

It is MUTOH’s first roll-to-roll UV LED printer based on the XpertJet printer platform

The XpertJet 1682UR, featuring two 8-channel monoblock 1440 nozzle print heads in a staggered setup and two 4-inch (101.6 mm) UV LED lamps, achieves print resolutions up to 1440 x 1440 dpi. Unlike other UV LED printers, it can produce five-layer graphics without media pull back, ensuring impeccable print results, say Mutoh.

The machine offers multiple automated calibrations, including bi-directional alignment, media feed adjustment, remaining media tracking and a nozzle area select feature which detects and compensates for missing nozzles. These features, Mutoh claim, will increase efficiency and reduce waste. Mutoh’s environmentally friendly SVHC free US61 series inks, available in C, M, Y, K, White and Varnish 800 ml ink packs are recommended.

Mutoh describe the UV LED US61 inks as sustainable and meeting the current and anticipated EU regulations on chemical use. They are free from SVHC1 and are compatible with a wide variety of substrates. The inks provide excellent adhesion, scratch resistance and flexibility, with an elongation of up to 200 % say Mutoh.

Lawrence Hebron of Graphtec GB, Mutoh’s UK distributor, says, “We are very excited to see this new printer in action at drupa. This will be a fantastic addition to the current range of Mutoh UV products and helps further position them as a leading manufacturer in this sector. Companies trust Mutoh to deliver great quality and reliable printers at an affordable price. We can’t wait to introduce this product to the UK market.”

Also on display at drupa 24 will be the XpertJet SR PRO 54” (137 cm) and 64” (162cm) sign and display printers, along with the GREENGUARD Gold certified, gBL-free MS51 sign and display inks.

For direct-to-shape applications, the XpertJet661UF A2+ sized desktop UV LED direct to object printer will be present as will the direct-to-substrate ValueJet628MP.
